Washington: World No 1 golfer Rory Mcllroy has been paired with defending champion Martin Kaymer and US amateur champion Gunn Yang in the US Open for the opening two rounds. The tournament will start here from June 18 to 21.
Mcllroy was triumphed here in 2011 but missed the cut in the last two events and he will be looking to live upto his rankings and reputation as he looks to clinch his fifth major title at the Chambers Bay, sportsmole.co.uk reported on Saturday. World No 2 Jordan Spieth will partner Justin Rose and Jason Day, while the threesome of Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Dustin Johnson will feature in another top group.
Tiger Woods, who recorded his worst ever round at The Memorial last weekend, will begin his tournament with Rickie Fowler and Louis Oosthuizen.
